Sept 14, 2015 The coming battle against Israel by Iran and Russia and its outcome by Ezekiel 38-39
This introduction to the very good article below is intended to bring out more details about the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy.
First the link to the prophecies:
The identity of the nations that go against Israel is well documented in the article and it is well to point out that both Russia and Iran are in a confrontational stance at the present time against Israel and the USA. The nearness of this prophecy fulfillment is great. The timing of the prophecy has to be before the Tribulation or at the very start of the Tribulation. Please look at:
9“ ‘Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up—the small and large shields, the bows and arrows, the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel. 10They will not need to gather wood from the fields or cut it from the forests, because they will use the weapons for fuel. And they will plunder those who plundered them and loot those who looted them, declares the Sovereign Lord.
Are the weapons listed here the weapons of modern day warfare or the prophet wrote the words that were known to him at the time of his writing?
The period of seven years is logical to associate it to the seven years of Tribulation so it places this prophecy at or before the Tribulation.
Do we see this prophecy as part of the second seal of Revelation, the red horse with a large sword who I have always identified as Russia or before the Soviet Union.
There are many more questions than available answers at this point, but the unmistakable fact is the nearness of its fulfillment.
